You are never alone with a bird or two. The blackbirds were out this morning, visiting for breakfast and believe me it is a very cold morning. There is an icy wind blowing which does not deter the magpies and crows from joining in the feeding ceremony.
Otherwise last night was a good one. I managed to sleep quite well and only awoke once. Up to now I had been getting constant pain in my left knee but it has now improved. The therapy lady gave me the advice to put an extra cushion under my left knee and it is now showing results. I was so glad, because sleep deprivation is not such a good thing and you walk around like a zombie during the day. I can also now climb into the bath/shower for my usual morning wash, not standing, but where there is a will there is a way. I have even now got a little cleaning routine in the morning. Not like it normally should be, but I am making progress,
Of course cleaning is not the peak of happiness, but I am functioning again. Sitting around and doing nothing all day is so boring. There is a time for everything. It is just the normal daily events that I miss.
Yesterday evening I even watched a film that Mr. Swiss had recorded. “Being there” with Peter Sellers as the main actor Mr. Chance. It is a film from 1979 and I watched it many years ago. I found it quite a bizarre film, but my online friend Marilyn reminded me of it in a blog last week and I mentioned it to Mr. Swiss. She said seeing it so many years later does tend to put a different angle on the events, and she was right. I always liked Peter Sellers and he was quite a versatile actor. This was his second last film as at the age of 55 he died unexpectedly of a heart attack. He was well known in Great Britain, as being one of the members of the famous Goon Show, together with Spike Milligan and Harry Secombe, a humour which not everyone understood, although I loved it. I remember my mum hated it and said they were all nutcases. It was british humour and a forerunner of the Monty Python Show.
And now I will move on to see if I am still functioning today. My first work is to get the meat slow cooking (boiled beef and mixed veg). Have a good day or night, wherever you are.
